AGENCY:

Federal Aviation Administration, DOT.

ACTION:

Notice of intent of waiver with respect to land.

SUMMARY:

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is giving notice that portions of the airport property are not needed for aeronautical use as currently identified on the Airport Layout Plan (ALP). The Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) proposes the release and transfer of the certain land parcels that were acquired through FAA Grants, to the Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) as part of a land exchange agreement with Mn/DOT. The property exchange will provide clear and responsible ownership of right-of-way parcels along the perimeter of MSP. MAC and Mn/DOT have agreed to exchange eleven (11) parcels of property. There are five (5) parcels totaling approximately 7.2 acres that MAC is requesting FAA approval to release, and there are six (6) parcels totaling approximately 14.2 acres that will be transferred from Mn/DOT to MAC. MAC will receive a net gain of approximately 7.0 acres of property from Mn/DOT as a result of these transfers. The parcels are not currently used or intended for aeronautical use and are so identified on the revised ALP.

MAC is proposing the following releases to Mn/DOT:

1. Three parcels acquired through multi-phase AIP Grants 3-27-0059-30, 3-27-0059-32, and 3-27-0059-36 that are currently used for roadway rights-of-way, comprising approximately 1.7 acres of land. They will be transferred to Mn/DOT in order to accommodate the approved planned expansion of the 66th Street interchange at Minnesota Trunk Highway No. 77 that was necessitated by the development of new Runway 17-35 and documented by the 1998 Dual-Track Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS).

2. One parcel, acquired through FAAP Grant 9-21-046-0316, in June 1963 comprising approximately 2.2 acres of vacant land. It will be transferred to Mn/DOT and controlled through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between MAC, Mn/DOT and the City of Richfield, MN dated January 31, 2000, which sets forth the terms and conditions for coordination of planned roadway improvements and the release of remnant parcels to the City of Richfield located at 66th Street and Minnesota Trunk Highway No. 77 in response to the need for improvements as documented by the 1998 Dual-Track FEIS and a Design Study Report.

3. One parcel acquired through FAAP Grant 9-21-046-06114, in March 1963 comprising approximately 3.3 acres of land. It will be transferred to Mn/DOT and utilized by Mn/DOT and the City of Richfield to construct 77th Street under Minnesota Trunk Highway No. 77. Currently, MAC uses the parcel for the storage of construction materials.

The current and intended property uses are limited to the application of public purposes and uses unique to the needs of MAC and Mn/DOT and are not needed for aeronautic use, as shown on the ALP. Approval does not constitute a commitment by the FAA to financially assist in the disposal of the subject airport property nor a determination of eligibility for grant-in-aid funding from the FAA. The disposition of the proceeds of the disposal of the airport property will be in accordance with FAA's Policy and Procedures Concerning the Use of Airport Revenue, published in the Federal Register on February 16, 1999.

In accordance with section 47107(h) of title 49, United States Code, this notice is required to be published in the Federal Register 30 days before modifying the land-use assurance that requires the property to be used for an aeronautical purpose.

DATES:

Comments must be received on or before July 1, 2004.
